Ritz-Carlton this week opened the doors to its new Mandapa resort in the Balinese town of Ubud. The third property to be launched under the hospitality company’s Reserve series, Mandapa is a blend of luxury and local heritage, introducing guests to the spiritual Balinese culture through its design and bespoke experiences. The resort promises to be an intimate retreat, situated amid the lush scenery that surrounds the nearby Ayung River and comprising just 60 pool villas and suites designed by Jeffrey Wilkes.
Aside from cultural tours, guests at the resort will be able to enjoy a range of personally-tailored wellness and detox programs throughout their stay, with a selection of health-focused menu available at the resort’s dining venues as well as spa options, and fitness facilities. In a culinary journey called Dining Beyond, guests are taken to dine on a special menu in exclusive spots within the reserve, although four other restaurants and lounges serving authentic Indonesian and Mediterranean cuisine are also available to choose from. For those traveling with kids, the resort has teamed up with Bali’s renowned Green School to create what it calls the Green Camp, a program that seeks to educate young children about the island’s natural and cultural wonders. Rooms at Mandapa start at US$570 per night.
